British actor Tom Hardy says he prepares for tough guy roles by playing board games.
"I prepared for this by playing Scrabble. It made me pretty tough because my co-star Jessica Chastain beat me. I also played Battleship," thesun.co.uk quoted Hardy as saying.
The actor attended the Cannes Film Festival Saturday.
"I come every year to Cannes, but it's the first time I've come to the parties," said the 34-year-old.
